Kid Gloves
Kid Gloves Nine Months of Careful Chaos By Knisley, Lucy Book - 2019

While I enjoyed Relish by the same author, I found it a bit meandering and disorganized. Kid Gloves, though, has a clear narrative through-line tracing Knisley's attempts to have a baby, from miscarriages (way more common than pop culture presents) to harrowing birth and first few rough weeks. Woven around this narrative is an informative history of the (lack of) understanding of female reproductive anatomy. Blends personal and informative really well.
